Real Madrid looking to edge Barcelona out in title race

With 90 points, three ahead of second-place Barcelona, Real Madrid can clinch the league title with a draw in the season's final match.

They left Balaídos with a comprehensive 4-1 win, courtesy of two well-taken Cristiano Ronaldo strikes and singles from Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos.

Real Madrid beat Celta Vigo 1-4 on Wednesday night, putting one hand firmly on La Liga.

"He's feeling great and he's shown it again here". "I feel good. Everything is decided in the final weeks of the season and I am doing well".

Ronaldo was starting his first La Liga game away from home for almost two months following coach Zinedine Zidane's rotation policy, and he smashed a loose ball high into the net after good work from playmaker Isco.

Zidane has also frequently rested and rotated Ronaldo this summer and it's paid dividends as he has ended the season in prolific goalscoring form - he has 13 goals in his last eight games.

"It is very easy to build up an understanding with Cristiano Ronaldo", the midfielder told the club's official website.

But he was denied a hat-trick late on when he inexplicably missed a virtually open goal, with his team-mates utterly stunned that he had failed to convert one of the easiest chances of his entire career. "It isn't normal for me to miss, but I'm human and I can do it". Add a league title to a potential second straight Champions League title, and Ronaldo can prepare to pick out his tux for receiving a fifth Ballon d'Or, which would bring him level with Messi for the most in history.

48th min: Isco led an electric foray into the Celta Vigo half and slipped the ball in to Ronaldo with a perfectly-weighted pass, and from there, the Portuguese star slotted home his second of the game. "We know it will be a hard game, but we are going to try and play at 100 percent to win it". Following his £80m move to the Bernabeu, however, Ronaldo's goalscoring exploits have rocketed - the striker plundering 284 goals in just 264 league appearances.
